ABOUT US

P

rovisional in set-up as well as in name, the Davidian Seventh-day Adventist Association exists solely to accomplish a divinely appointed work within the Seventh-day Adventist denomination, wherein it therefore strictly confines its activities.  As its work therewithin draws to a close, and the “servants of our God” (Rev. 7:3) are sealed, its name will be changed (Isa. 56:5; 62:2; 65:15) and its purpose and its work will become all-embracing to the gospel (Matt. 17:11; Acts 3:21, Isa. 61:4-7).  Then its Constitution and By-Laws as herein codified will become fully operative.

The object of this Association is to bring about among God’s people that reformation called for in the Testimonies for the Church Volume 9, page 126, as the prerequisite movement to sounding the “Eleventh-Hour Call” (Matt. 20:6, 7) of “the everlasting gospel…to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people.” Rev. 14:6.  Through this call, the Loud Cry of the three angels’ messages, it is to gather “the people of the saints of the Most High” (Dan. 7:27) into the kingdom “which shall never be destroyed…but…shall break in pieces and consume all…kingdoms.” Dan. 2:44.  Thus it shall usher in the reign of Christ as Lord of lords and King of kings over all the earth forever and ever.

OUR NAME

T

he name, Davidian, deriving from the name of the king of Ancient Israel, accrues to this Association by reason of its following aspects: First, it is dedicated to the work of announcing and bringing forth the restoration (as predicted in Hosea 1:11; 3:5) of David’s kingdom in antitype, upon the throne of which Christ, “the son of David,” is to sit. Second, it purports itself to be the first of the first fruits of the living, the vanguard from among the present-day descendants of those Jews who composed the Early Christian Church. With the emergence of this vanguard and its army, the first fruits, from which are elected the 12,000 out of each of the twelve tribes of Jacob, “the 144,000″ (Rev. 14:1; 7:2-8) who stand on Mount Zion with the Lamb (Rev. 14:1; 7:2-8), the reign of antitypical David begins.

The name Seventh-day Adventist, which this Association inherits from the parent denomination, is provisional (Isa. 62:2) and only for the duration of its work within the parent denomination.

HEALTH REFORM

The term “health reform” means more than abstaining from the use of such foods as the Lord pronounces unclean for human consumption (Lev. 11; Isa. 66:16).

THE DAVIDIAN HOME

“Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord: and he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.” Mal. 4:5

The history of the 11th Hour Church is vast and deep. Unfortunately many Davidians are not aware of what our own history is. Far-flung and far-fetched tales have crept in among us and the truth requires some unraveling.

We should, therefore, diligently study the message and faithfully comply with ALL its requirements, and while we are thus making ourselves ready, we can be helping others to do likewise. The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit{7SC1-6: 15.1.4}
O, I cry aloud to God that He may awaken all Present Truth believers and cause them to see that a mere theoretical knowledge of Present Truth is not sufficient to save their souls from Satan's claims upon them.  Some have scarcely any realization of the magnitude and needs of the work, much less of their own condition.  They lack true wisdom and they lack divine judgment. They are not willing to deny themselves of anything either for the sake of their own souls' salvation or for the sake of the salvation of others', yet they talk of having a great burden to save other people's souls, and long to go out and give the message!  …..Inspiration
Inspiration{3SC8-10: 2.1.5}
Let us all, as a Davidian band, remember that we are called to the high office of conservators of the gospel, restorers of the old paths, repairers of the breach. We are called as the first of the "firstfruits" from Laodicea, and thus we are to serve as "saviours" to and of Laodicea (Obad. 17, 21). Hence, obviously, before we can save our brethren from the fatally pernicious malady of Laodiceanism, we must first save ourselves from it. And to do this, we must now and forever absolutely stop treating symptoms, and instead get at the cause; stop dosing ourselves first for this, then for that, but instead correctly apply the sovereign remedy, the message in the heart, until a complete cure is effected.God the Father
God the Father{9SC1-12:7.2.6}
"Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." 2 Tim. 2:15. "But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: And be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear." 1 Pet. 3:15. The commandment in the Bible is that a Christian must study, and that he also must give an answer to every man. This Indian being one of the "every man," according to the Scriptures there must be a way, and it is the duty of a Christian to give him an answer with meekness and fear.The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit{SR1: 204.2}
Even though the enemies of Truth may resort to every perfidy to harm the cause, yet Truth always triumphs, and God's people with It. Nothing can hurt the Truth. It is like an anvil: When the hammers of the adversaries are all worn out, the Anvil will still stand.Br. V. T. Houteff
Br. V. T. Houteff{1TG29: 14.4}
Though it is the crowning work of our salvation and of the setting up of the kingdom of Christ upon earth, yet the "investigative judgment" is one of the least understood and most mystified and confused Bible subjects of the age. Were it not essential to our salvation, the enemy would not have expended every possible effort to envelop it in darkness. Imperative, then, is the unremitting need to search the Scriptures "as for hidden treasure," and to beseech God for the guidance of His Spirit in order rightly to understand this all-important subject. In vain though, any search for truth unless the motive be to learn and to do the will of God. Hence, "if any man," says Jesus, "will do His will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God." John 7:17.The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit{TN3: 3.1}
"The preacher has a great time. If his hair is gray, he is too old. If he is a young man, he has not had experience enough. If he is single, he is a flirt; if he is married, he is like all other folk. If his wife is old, she is a hindrance to him; if she is young, he pays too much attention to her. If he has ten children, he has too many; if he has none, he is setting a bad example. If his wife sings in the choir, she is presuming; if she does not, she isn't interested in her husband's work. If the preacher reads from notes, he's a bore; if he speaks extemporaneously, he isn't deep enough. If he stays at home in his study, he doesn't mix enough with people; if he is seen around the streets, he ought to be at home setting up a good sermon. If he calls on the poor, he is playing to the grandstand; if he calls at homes of the wealthy, he is an aristocrat. Whatever he does, someone could have told him how to do better."--Wittenberg Enterprise," March 11, 1937.Wittenberg Enterprise
Wittenberg Enterprise{3SC3,4: 4.1.1}
These facts are significant, and force the sorrowful admission that they allow of no other conclusion than that there is an element of professed Present Truth believers not fully in step with the message. They profess to be, but they walk in the sparks of their own kindling. They are a reproach to the cause as long as they remain a part of it, and the main source of its limited power. These brethren are portrayed in the Poor Preacher's Answer, quoted above, in paragraph 4.The Poor Preacher
The Poor Preacher{3SC3,4: 3.1.4}
"This is the house of God and the gate of heaven." Only by the gospel proclamation through that Spiritual house can God save His people. There is to be One fold, One Shepherd, One Lord, One Truth to embrace, One salvation to accept, One road to travel, One gate to pass through, One train to take, and One time to depart, One Heaven to enter, One people, and One holy family. There can be no other way!Our Heavenly Father
Our Heavenly Father{SR2: 265.2}

"'Let not your heart be troubled; ye believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.'
John 14:1-3.Jesus Christ
"Long have we waited for our Saviour's return. But none the less sure is the promise. Soon we shall be in our promised home. There Jesus will lead us beside the living stream, flowing from the throne of God, and will explain to us the dark providence through which on this earth He brought us in order to perfect our characters.
1SC9: 1.2Bro. V. T. Houteff
There we shall behold with undimmed vision the beauties of Eden restored. Casting at the feet of the Redeemer the crowns that He has placed on our heads, and touching our golden harps, we shall fill all heaven with praise to Him that sitteth on the throne."
